Running Windows 2008 R2
- DHCP server not installed as Role
- Installed server as a Domain controller
- AD DS forest root domain = axiom-mods
- DNS server installed
- name of computer= nlb1
When I click on the start button -> Administrative Tools -> Active Directory Users and Computer. I end up with an error like the dialog box in picture shown.
I thought it had something to do with DNS because of what I see on the first line of the dialog box that popped up.
I have my DNS info in the background picture as well. I am running a DNS server on my domain controller. I was under the impression that I needed a DNS server to install AD DS. I did do that when I initially set up my server using DCpromo.
What happened? I remember being able to add users to the domain before?
Also, when I click on:
Server Manager --> Roles --> DNS and I hover over DNS in the submenu and I see errors in event viewer, it says DNS server could not open socket to 192.168.1.100 (which is the IP address of my LAN adapter and the address I gave to my DNS server)
Edit: Okay so I have got rid of second problem which says DNS could not open a socket to 192.168.1.100.
So i know DNS service is working. But I notice that the reverse lookup zone are missing. So, I tried to create a reverse zone lookup in DNS Manager I clicked my DNS server in the manager and right click and the submenu to create new zone for DNS wizard pops up. I cannot create the reverse lookup zone for my DNS service because I cannot create a directory partition for axiom-mods.com domain due to fact that it thinks im not Enterprise Admin.
